The zone valve on my current system just went out.
I am in the process of selecting a replacement zone valve, but have a question.
The old one had a manual lever to open the valve if it were to go out, but one of the new ones I am considering doesn't have this.

My thought is, is that the manual lever is only going to help if you need immediate heating (we don't).
Any issues getting one without a lever?

Manual lever is to open the valve whilst filling the system

Fair point. Could be done electrically if one wasn't there, but I see how that would be advantageous.

I would stick with manual lever best for filling, if you try to operate the valve electrically by turning on while filling you will damage the pump!

Sounds good.
I think my old valve overheated - so I still need to troubleshoot that first.

Chances are that ether the motor has seized up or the gearing or the valve itself has jammed.
This would cause the motor to overheat and eventually burn out.
